In 1993, President Clinton signed Executive Order 12856, “Federal Compliance with Right-to-Know Law and Pollution Prevention Requirements.” This order established that TRI reporting requirements be extended to all federal facilities that meet TRI threshold reporting criteria regardless of the type of operations at the facility, as described by their NAICS code. These actions were recently affirmed in March 2015 by President Obama through Executive Order 13693, “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade.” Due to these requirements, federal facilities are subject to the TRI reporting requirements.
